The Villas at Palmas, Humacao

For vacationers looking to getaway from the glitz of San Juan, the Villas at Palmas is an excellent choice. Located 45 minutes from the capital city, the resort lies tucked on the Caribbean side of the island near the town of Humacao. Actually a compendium of resorts that range from standard hotel rooms to a bed and breakfast inn to luxury condominiums, Palmas is a city in itself, with a staff of over 500 employees.

Although three and a half miles of groomed beach (plus another six miles of nearly deserted beach) tempt vacationers to soak up sun and sometimes rolling surf, the sports facilities offer plenty of opportunities to stay busy. The Golf Club features a championship course designed by Gary Player with holes offering views of El Yunque rain forest, the sea, and the nearby island of Vieques. The largest tennis center in the Caribbean has classes for players of every level.

Children 3-13 find plenty of fun at the Palmas Adventure Club. The daily program offers a full slate of activities: Olympic beach games, swimming, kayaking, miniature golf, water sports, hikes, talent shows, arts and crafts, pony rides, fishing, tennis, and a play ground. The program is available on a half or full day basis. Drop your child off in the morning or afternoon for the half day or the full day program (it’s cheaper to buy a 5-day package, if the vacation lasts longer than a few days). Babysitting is also available by appointment only.
